Spring Boot 2 — It’s the default Java way to implement REST endpoints and microservices nowadays. I really miss old days of spring where we used XML and there was no coupling and spring was really lightweight. IMHO Spring is great if you use it under a service, If you use a shared library of the big framework, you can easily get Binary Coupling which will be bad for you in the long run. Today I want to show how easy is to use Netty. Using netty directly is not that hard and really anyone can use without spring. Netty comes as default dependency if you use webflux instead of the web. So Let’s get started.
